Create a device map .csv file

To perform a mass deployment in  a non-AD/LDAP environment, inSync requires user and device details to be imported in a  device map file in a .csv format. inSync maps devices to the respective users based on the relationship specified in the device map .csv file. The user-to-device mapping ensures controlled device and user activation of inSync client and prevents addition of rogue or unauthorized devices to inSync.

You can download a sample device map file from inSync Management Console and add data to it. To download the sample device map:

  1. On inSync Management Console menu bar, click Manage > Deployments > Non AD/LDAP. Non AD/LDAP Deployment page is displayed. 
  2. Click Import Device Map CSV
    Map Devices dialog box is displayed.
  3. Click the Download Sample CSV File link. A sample .csv file is saved to your local drive. You can update this sample with the data specified in the table below and use it as your device map file.

You need to update the following values in the device map .csv file from your user and device database. 

  Value Description

1.

Email-id
(email-id)

Email-id of the user. inSync validates this against the list of user email-ids registered with inSync. Multiple authentic devices and user names can map to the same email-id. The .csv file may have multiple entries for the same email-id to show multiple mapped devices and users. However, Druva recommends to have one user per registered email ID.
